Watkins Glen, N.Y. – August 6, 1998 – Johnny Miller, driver of the #64 Miller Racing PLCDirect sponsored Chevrolet Camaro, spent Wednesday evening with students and staff of Lions Camp Badger, Home of the Empire State Speech & Hearing Clinic in Spencer, NY.

Miller shared his racing experiences with the group and autographed posters for everyone.
Lions District Governor Art Peck said, “It’s really great to have a driver like Johnny who is so dedicated to helping the Lions. We truly appreciate everything Johnny has done for the Lions Clubs across the country and look forward to working with him throughout the weekend in the events we have planned for the Southern Tier.”
The students were extremely excited to see a professional race car driver. District Governor Peck went on to say, “The students were real race fans. They were full of questions and excitement because it was the first time many of them ever got to see a professional race car driver.”
Johnny Miller - “I had a really great time. I enjoyed talking with the kids and answering their questions. They were full of excitement. It’s a really tremendous feeling to be involved with an organization like the Lions.. We do these type of events all over the country.” Johnny will be attending tonight’s Corning Race Fever Night where he’ll be signing autographs at the Watkins-Montour Lions Club booth on Market Street. Miller and fellow Trans-Am star Leighton Reese and several other NTB Trans-Am Series drivers will also be at the Seneca Grand Prix Family Fun Center Friday evening from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. racing against local fans and signing autographs..
